About the Book:
Violet Young is a hugely popular journalist-turned-mummy-vlogger, with three young children, a successful husband and a million subscribers on YouTube who tune in daily to watch her everyday life unfold. But one day she disappears from the online world - her entire social media presence deleted overnight, with no explanation. Has she simply decided that baring her life to all online is no longer a good idea, or has something more sinister happened to her? Told from the perspectives of her most avid fans, obsessed with finding out the truth, their search quickly reveals a web of lies, betrayal, and shocking consequences.
Her life is perfect. So why has she left us?
Wow what a great book, full of twists and turns. I found this to be a quick and easy read and one that was hard to put down. The plot starts speedily and never lets up; it keeps you guessing about the next twist and its resolution. To me it was never clear who would do what and for what reason – I’m an avid reader of mysteries and thrillers, and after decades of reading...not much comes as a surprise anymore. But the intricate and evil loopholes Charlotte Duckworth leaves for her readers is masterfully devised and make the novel a joy to read.
I appreciate the way the author ties everything up. Unlike many other writers, who build up and build up and then wrap everything up in the final nanosecond, leaving the reader feeling slightly disappointed at the sudden ending that doesn't explain everything to the reader's satisfaction. All in all, an incredibly imaginative, cleverly constructed, and wickedly suspenseful read that I highly recommend.
Thank you NetGalley, Charlotte Duckworth, and Crooked Lane Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
